  1. is that price 120 dollars canadian ...where in southern alberta are you from tim
  2. not sure if this is relevant but we have a electric boiler that heats our hydronic water system have never ran it to produce steam but have used it to produce 200 degree water . at over a 1000 bucks a month to run it was shut off in no time , our power bills come in every 3 months so by time we got the power bill it was not good , almost a big brown splatter on the post office wall when i opened the bill , my opinion is dont use electricity do what you have to to avoid it burn the neighbours furniture to produce heat if you have to anything but electricity . lol tim
  3. good post jo very well written tim
  4. thanks falling rock we will give it a try . we may end up getting a tig brush worse case . thanks kim
  5. hello everyone i was wondering if anyone has a method they are willing to share for passivating stainless steel other than nitric acid bath . need more of a spot treatment like welds ect not the entire vessels . any info is appreciated . thanks kim
  6. does the size of the mash tun have a influence on the wall thickness should a 500 gallon mashtun be thicker than a 150 gallon unit
  7. atta boys now lets all be joe pro so we dont drive the administrator to drinking
  8. any idea of the manufacturer
  9. thats unreal glad the fella is ok . i think that still held up pretty good couple new fittings and a buffing pad and bet she ready to roll , ru going to rebuild it paul
  10. i would suggest the possibility of getting or modify a mash tun that can be heated and cooled to mash with but can also be fitted with a separate lid that can used as a stripping still . a simple pot still column and ur mash tun is a stripping still and ur 75 gallon still is only for spirit runs . i wish i took a pic of it but i seen a mash tun lid made out of oak planks with a pot still head on it super cheep and usable till the guy could afford to up grade . stumpys 500 gallon would be sweet unit . if u cant secure a agitator dont dismiss the idea of recirculating with a pump instead of agitating , the pump will not only keep your product from scorching but can be used to empty mash tun in to fermenters and empty fermenters into stripping still and empty stripping still after stripping run . may not be super fly cool but it will save you some start up money , my theory is every 50 bucks you can save is a bottle of product that you get to keep the money from instead of giving it to the bank .... we toured a vodka distillery in January that had a beautiful hand made german still how ever they only run it once a week because they dont have the sales to run it every day to me that dont make sense . the bank gets paid weather the still runs that day or not . where are you located curt depending on your location there are other options to get started and selling top notch product . best advice i was ever told was that when your night shift is run ragged trying to keep up to sales its time to get bigger equiptment lol ... tim
  11. hey curt how big is your still tim
  12. hello way over there in BC hope your meeting goes well on thursday tim
  13. i spent years at a integrated feedlot / ethanol plant all the stillage was pumped to the cattle it was there only source of water and it accounted for 10 % of the grain in there diet . the distillers grain was also fed out mixed with silage ect my knowledge poundmakers agventures in lanigan sask was the first feedlot / ethanol combination in canada .
  14. so what is everyones preference for micron size of primary and secondary filters for barrel aged whisky
  15. good charts paul but im curious there are no percentages on the various chemicals would it be safe to conclude that it is pure or as pure as possible when tested , tim
